Elevator Shaft to Nesika Lodge

Lets do a off Trail fun hike! at least the first part is!

 

 Up the Elevator Shaft over to Nesika Lodge and down the trail of ten Falls to Multnomah Lodge.

Difficult due to steep climb up a rock field at the beginning. It mellows out crossing Multnomah Plateau where we will look for the Old Buick. On to the Nesika Lodge where I hope they will invite us in for a visit and tour.

About 8 miles.

Bring 5 dollors for drivers

Bring the usual winter gear.

no pass required

Off to work will update tomorrow!

    I was very challenged by the Elevator Shaft, we climbed it at a pretty good pace! The rest was very nice and even the rain was no problem. I had never seen all the falls up there, it was beautiful!

    Yep, another Rick J. straight-up-the-hill adventure. These are the ones that stand out from the rest.

    Amazing! Everyone showed up on a wet day. Great little hike up to the plateau. Sure wish the lodge would of been open to warm up in but still a great lunch spot. Thanks all

    Fun, relaxing hike. Rain held off as we ascended the Elevator Shaft. Lodge was closed, so we had lunch on a porch there. Nice hike back to the falls which was beautiful, even with a little rain.

    Just to note that there won't be anyone at Nesika to let you in because that trip was cancelled. But you can have lunch on the porch.

    Seriously, Rick and Craig, we are packing in all the food we will need. We may hike on Friday, depending on weather and what the group wants to do. You are welcome to visit and enjoy coffee, tea, whatever. It will be fun and I am looking forward to seeing you guys! I will have ten people and so far they are all Meetup members; no Trails Club members signed up.

      Agreed - it will be good to see you all! Seriously, if you need something, I will send you my phone number via email just in case.

    @Jeff - Save us some leftovers from Thanksgiving! ;)

    November 15, 2012

    • Craig G

      Sure - no problem at all. Please include your CC along with the order. We'll take care of it. I understand Safeway delivers :)

      One problem with the resupply though. The food will not be hot and ready to eat upon our arrival ;)

      November 15, 2012

  • Rick L. J.

    Serious though. Jeff this wont impact what you have planned? We can change the hike if it would be best.

    If you do need something Craig would be glad to pack it. Say one of those small things of beer. What do they call them? Lol

    Suhad. Craig gave some good advice. Its a steep hike for the first mile or so. We will gain about 1800 ft. Hope to see you on a future hike.

  • Suhad

    Thank you for the suggestion. Hope to make it to one of your hikes in the near future.

    Greetings Suhad - Welcome to "Portland Hiking Meetup"! This is a very good question to ask. You should be comfortable with your own hiking equipment, including boots, socks, winter gear and the "10 essentials". If you are unfamiliar with any of these items or what they mean, then you may wish to consider a hike that gives you a chance to try out works for you on a hike, if you are not sure already. You will certainly need hiking boots here.
    Susan (over at the "NW Wilderness" group) has a hike to Herman Falls on that day which may be a good opportunity to figure out what works for you. I would certainly not want to discourage you from hiking as all are welcome. It is also each person's responsibility to be prepared and know what that means.

    Meant seasoned...

    This will be my first time hiking with your group- I'm not a season hiker but I'm fit and I think I have a pair of hiking boots. Would this be a good one to start with?
    Thanks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
